Shorts: Not Another Teen Movie
Teenage kicks from around the world.
EIFF's Young Programmer group have selected the freshest, boldest international shorts about young people. Adolescence is a subject all filmmakers love but few manage to be as funny, moving, honest and original as these snapshots of teenage life.
